Personally, I believe in the Lord and the Lady. As well as God the Force, which is universal, all-knowing, all-present.
There are 4 fundamental forces in physics. Gravity, electromagnetic, and I believe the other 2 are strong interaction and weak interaction. These are 4 pillars.
There is also the electromagnetic spectrum, which is very important. Once you hit gamma rays the next one up is beta waves and then alpha waves, where you're talking about tiny matter. Matter and energy are, of course, interchangeable.
Up from alpha waves is a Hydrogen atom. Then a Helium atom etc. All the way through to the rare, heavy metals such as uranium, which are unstable.
Chemistry, the periodic table, has its origins in Alchemy. Literally changing matter into a different type of matter. That's a chemical reaction.
